Many of you should know by now that I'm really big on numbers, and while 20,000 posts isn't as ominous a milestone as 1729, it's still worth bragging about. 20,000 is a respectable post count for a still young community with great no-spamming etiquette and a chat replacing the need for trivial posts (though we miss out on such useful reads as "Let's count to 1000!" threads). Several big old pioneers of the PbP format have post counts around 200,000. It'd be good for Miza to be there in 2012, cause you know, it's 2012 so we shouldn't be planning too far ahead.
Now, this is all sweet and stuff, but it is certainly not why most people read my stat entries. What they really want to know is - what are web surfers looking for when they stumble upon Mizahar? And so, we look at the google searches that brought people here over the last month. Thankfully, we've made some progress since the times when we owned the word Maseltoff. Changes made to the forums made it so people are usually looking for fantasy roleplaying stuff when they find us. Er, usually. Ahem.
Some people use google as a replacement for the search function, to see the places where their PCs are mentioned. I'm not counting those, or the queries from people who already knew Miza and were looking for a specific page. I won't bore you with the obvious "fantasy rp", "roleplaying plots", lore, etc, either....
